Abstract


  • All university educators perform design work as they prepare and plan learning experiences for their

    students. How such design work is undertaken, conceptualised, and optimally supported is the focus of

    ongoing research for the authors. The purpose of this article is to present the results of a research study

    that sought to gain a richer understanding of university educators’ design work; investigate how the idea

    of Learning Design could support design work; and examine how learning designs could be made available

    within a Learning Management System (LMS) as a design support tool.

    An overview of the outcomes from the entire research project is presented. The project’s aims and

    outcomes and what was achieved are explained and potential future directions for this area of research

    are discussed.
